“I chose to work at Appli-Tec because I was impressed with the questions asked during the interview process, such as how I would solve a problem or address a concern – things I wasn’t expecting. The questions showed me the company cared and wanted their employees to have a voice. I haven’t been proven wrong – Appli-Tec genuinely cares about their employees. If you want to work for a place that respects all of their employees, has a good understanding of work-life balance, will give you all the tools & resources you need to be successful, and is also growing and expanding, then Appli-Tec is the company for you.”
